FYI- This Tica Ti Tica Ta "soundie" has a person in it that is alive and well as of this date, March 8th 2008! Bud Mercer of the "Mercer Brothers" is the taller brunette. They were quite young here and Bud is now 94 years young, his brother,Jim, passed away in 2003 from a stroke while they were still doing their comedy dance routines at the Palm Springs Follies. Bud Mercer is now taking on a new career STILL! He's now an author of his first published book of Memoirs,
Tripping the Light Fantastic through the evolution of show business: from Vaudeville to MTV! You can learn all about it at, and NO these guys weren't gay by ANY MEANS. Bud is my father and I'm very proud that I'm his daughter. He may be the oldest living vaudevillian still working for all we know!

You guys are awful; back then "gay" meant happy. Your homoerotic allusions have already been made a billion times on this site, thank you very much.

Now fo the review:
This is a charming little soundie--though a little patronizing to Latin culture, as you might expect. The dancing was good, and the tune was catchy. However, there was nothing here that was especially outstanding. 3 stars.

A dated novelty number. Singer is not that photogenic.

Tica Ti and Tica Ta are her pet names for the TWO guys she's smitten with, although to be honest they look more interested in each other than her. In fact, she even calls them gay senors, so at least she knew what she was in for. "The first time we three did a samba... I gave you my phone number..". I suspect the most she really could have hoped for was a conga line. At least that looked vaguely latin. Maybe. Actually none of it looks or sounds remotely latin, but it's amusing and worth the download.

Subject: I'm Latin because the song says I am
A woman of dubious latin origins sings about a guy who's name is so hard to pronounce she names him, lovingly I'm sure, 'Tici Ti Tica Ta', then the song takes time out for some dubious latin dancers, then she sings, then, of course, it all gets out of hand with a conga dance at the end. Oh those white people with their latin craziness!
